Have you ever wondered how to add interactivity to your mind maps? Wouldn’t it be great if you could package explanations with the content of your mind maps, without creating something cluttered and hard to read? You can accomplish this goal by using a tool called ThingLink.
ThingLink inserts a layer over the top of an image or video and enables you to quickly and easily create interactive hotspots. Each hotspot can contain a text box and hypertext link. This makes it possible for publishers, educators, brands and bloggers to create interactive experiences for their audiences.

For mind mappers, ThingLink provides an opportunity to add meaning and context to topics. It’s also an engaging and memorable way to share information with your audience.
